Love, hearts and roses

I am entering my card into two challenges:
The Artistic Stamper blog challenge - the theme is Hearts and Flowers
Lisa B. Designs blog challenge -  the theme is Love.
I started by decorating a white scalloped edge card from Craftwork Cards. I used the large rose stamp from the lovely Botanical 3 stamp set from The Artistic Stamper. I used a pink ink pad and green maker pen to colour the stamp before stamping it all-over the card blank. I stamped the script stamp over the top using a light brown ink pad. The script stamp I used was Calligraphic Mat 11 also by The Artistic Stamper. I distressed the edges with a brending tool and pink ink pads.
 I die cut a white hearts and a pink heart frame using X-Cut heart dies.  I used the love stamp from The Artistic Stamper's Journaling Words #1 stamp set for the sentiment. I added the pink frame to the white heart with foam pads. I stamped the a large rose and smaller roses, both stamps are from Botanical 3 stamp. I first stamped them in green ink and then again seperatly in pink ink. I cut out the pink roses (not including the leaves) and attached them onto the green stamped rose and leaf.

I attached the heart to the card blank and then attached the roses, either directly to the heart or with foam pads.

 To finish the card I added white faux stitching, a white ribbon bow and faux pearls.

Hi Georgina, this is lovely. The script is a great background for the roses. Thanks for entering the Lisa B Designs challenge.
